Trump speaks with Guam's governor in extremely candid phone call

Trump speaks with Guam's governor in extremely candid phone call”

The President later returned the unfolding situation on the Korean peninsula, retweeting a Fox & Friends report on a statement by Secretary of Defense James Mattis warning Kim Jong-un was "grossly unmatched" in any conflict with the US.

The mayor of Guam recorded the candid, 3-minute phone conversation with Trump and posted it to his Facebook page.

I just wanted to pay my respects and we are with you one thousand per cent, you are safe. "Let's never forget that", Bolton said in the tweet that Trump retweeted.

"Don't worry about a thing", Trump said.

Calvo said, "With all the criticism that's going on over there from a guy that's being targeted, we need a president like you".

Kirby said the president has a right to be frustrated, as he is dealing with escalation the likes of which no other president has faced with regard to North Korea.

Amid increasing tensions with North Korea, President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to highlight comparisons between his leadership and that of former president Barack Obama, including an unscientific, almost week-old poll asserting he is the better president.

"It is all rendered harder for them when he goes off and pops the way he did at the golf course the other day about fire and fury", Kirby said.

North Korea this week announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory, which is a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers.

Trump on Friday furthered the rhetoric, saying the United States was "locked and loaded" to deal with the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula.
